Timeless life-guides

THEY EXPRESS the eternal wisdom and love of God to all of humanity. They will never be outdated. They apply to solving every discordant human condition. Ideally, people follow the Ten Commandments not out of fear of what would happen if they disobeyed them, but because they naturally love good, which comes from God. People follow what they know and love.

The First Commandment acknowledges only one Mind or God, and disputes the validity of the material senses' assertion of many conflicting minds. As individuals think and act under the guidance of this Mind, they inevitably will help heal society worldwide because our thinking determines our experience.

Jesus called this "the first and great commandment." And the second, he said, was "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" (Matt. 22:38, 39).
